Dear Railways Passenger!
We are not (yet) an online system for Thai Railways. We are manually buying tickets for you at the station. Trains in Thailand are usually sold out (especially VIP class compartments). It may happen that your preferred berth (upper or lower) is not available. In this case we can try to get a different berth for you. You may select your flexibility level below.

You can not travel with the voucher you got from us. You need to come and check in to collect your boarding passes. The process is very similar to the one you know from the airport. You can not board the train without a special boarding pass.

Why book with us?

  • Simple and seamless booking process.
  • Usually we confirm your tickets within 24h.
  • Ticket pickup at/near the departure station in Bangkok with an alternative shipping option to the parcel room at your departure station or by EMS to your home/hotel address.
  • It is possible to change the passport details after making the purchase.
  • Multiple refund/change/shipping options nobody else can provide for you. Changing a boarding pass costs 160 Baht extra (fee per person).

Our booking fee is there to cover costs for providing tickets to our customers. This involves our staff going to the railways counter, wait in the queue and arrange the best tickets for you, depending on availability and according to your requirements and much much more. The purchasing process of train tickets is different to our bus tickets, which are instantly confirmed - bus operator systems are connected in real-time. Trains are not like that. In case we have charged a higher price at the moment of booking (for child fares, changing VIP to 2nd Class, upper/lower, etc.) we refund in cash when you pick up tickets.

Please note: Thai railways release seats to the public 90 days before the departure for long-hauls and 30 days for short routes (e.g. Bangkok <-> Chumphon). If your departure is in more than 90 (30) days your payment and request will be held in the system and we issue tickets at first possibility ensuring you get the seats you want.

Attention: Please enter your real gender when booking. If you have mentioned you are female and book 1st Class/VIP, we'll put you with another female passenger. If in reality you are not exactly female - you may face well expected difficulties when boarding...

Travel with children: Please note that the policy of Thai Railways permits children less than 12 years old or of height under 150cm to travel on LOWER BERTHS ONLY.

Berths on train #13 come in a group of 4. There are electric power outlets (220V) on seat numbers 5, 6, 9, 10, 29, 30, 33 and 34.

Cancelation policy: Bangkok - Chiang Mai #13

The following refund options are available:

  1. Refund 80% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking before the ticket is confirmed.

    Amount to be refunded: $ 22.25

  2. Refund 50% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking after the ticket is confirmed.

    Press refund button before 2019-04-20 19:35 PM Bangkok time (2 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 13.91

  3. Refund 15% (excl. fees)

    If you would like to cancel your booking after the ticket is confirmed.

    Press refund button between 2019-04-20 19:35 PM and 2019-04-22 19:35 PM Bangkok time (4 days left).

    Amount to be refunded: $ 4.17

  4. Cancel

    Amount to be refunded: ฿ 0

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Thai trains are awesome! Left on time. Arrived EXACTLY on time. Staff is friendly and helpful. The cabins are clean. Bedding and blankets always clean. Love that the seat converts to bunks so you can sit comfortably until you're ready for your bunk.

Super comfortable cabins and a super friendly staff! We've been traveling across SouthEast Asia for almost 3 months already, and so far Thailand trains have been the best. In this particular route, we were offered food fro dinner and breakfast, but do bear in mind that it's not part of your ticket and you will have to pay for it later!

12go is perfectly organized and the staff fluently speaks English. The train ride is a bit bumpy but all in all we were decently accommodated. If you take the night train to Chiang Mai make sure you get a lower bed although the upper ones are legit as well.

Despite other reviews my train (with blue curtains) wasn't cold at all. Just slept in my pyjamas. I also found the staff friendly. They even made up your bed. The train itself was also less wobbly and noisy as I thought it would be on beforehand.

Getting the ticket through 12Go was very easy and they did exactly as they say on their website. My ticket turned out to be cheaper than expected so when I came to collect the ticket from the 12Go office I got a refund of the extra I had paid. The train ride itself was ok. Only cons were that the lights were on the whole night and it was a bit cold while sleeping, but I guess thats better than too hot. Overall an okay journey and good experience with 12go.

My booking experience with 12Go was fast and legit. They did what they promised, which was to use your preferred selection and give your the best options possible after checking in person at the train station. I had two hours from the airport to the train station so I flew via the ARL and motorbike and reached their office 30 mins before departure. Service was professional, fast and detailed. Very helpful! The train itself was alright. I took #13 which was not the newest but was still decent. There's even menu service! The only cons were that travelers boarding around midnight talked too much, and together with the light in the cabin, didn't let me sleep too well. The curtains drop easily too because it's just a loose hook, so when the travelers boarded, they took it down twice hahaha. Otherwise, decent train ride!

Main problem for me was the almost constant smell of diesel in the train. You feel as if you were sleeping at the bus station. More train was slow or stationary, more this smell was intense. And the train was Very slow, so very smelly. Toilet smell was horrible too - you need to retain your breath before walking in.

De trein was vies op het beddengoed na. Er liepen kakkerlakken. Licht blijft aanstaan waardoor vooral de bovenste slaper meer licht heeft en slecht kan slapen. Matrasjes waren wel zacht en de reis liep precies op schema. Je moet het een keer hebben mee gemaakt maar nooit meer.
